The Bay Leaf Mobile Kitchen

Every year since 1995, the International Herb Association chooses an herb of the year. The bay laurel is the 2009 Herb of the Year. Bet you didn’t know that! It’s all about raising public awareness. You can easily grow herbs, they are lovely to look at AND you can EAT them. So I thought it apropos when I passed an adorable little green food truck today called The Bay Leaf Mobile Kitchen.

Next to the ARCO Exhibits Building you will find a very genial guy serving up delicious soups and sandwiches. The running favorite at the museum is the tomato-basil bisque soup and the turkey brie sandwich (with a sweet fig spread on oven roasted baguette). Or you could try the Bay Leaf Grilled Cheese: NY sharp cheddar, granny smith apple slices and Hempler’s thick-cut bacon. The vegan choice is a hummus pita; it is house-made hummus with marinated cucumber, tomato, mint and basil in a warmed pita.

Another food offering that I really like is the Mexican Coke. It is made in Mexico with REAL cane sugar. It’s become all the rage, so don’t miss the opportunity to sample it.

Mexican Coke can also be purchased in the bottle at Costco.

Jones soda is also pure sugar cane and not high fructose corn syrup (which is the draw of Mexican Coke). Jones is out of Seattle, but widely available in the region.

Someone might be interested in viewing the video we put together at the Old Settlers Picnic in Ferndale. A very friendly lady in your Mobile Kitchen waved to the camera!
